With this new version, you no longer need to download the ZIP file from the Blackmagic Design website. The script does it automatically.

Anyone else getting a hard crash when you try to read media from disk or switch away from the media panel and back again?

@thesbos: Yep I'm having the same error. Also with the beta package from AUR

Looks like something's wrong with the permissions? Running `/opt/resolve/bin/resolve` crashes after the splash screen with a permission error in the logs - running `sudo /opt/resolve/bin/resolve` works fine.

Added libpng12 and log4cxx as deps.

Switching to libopenssl-1.0-compat until openssl won't cause conversation. Let me know when it's no longer needed.

Not sure if nvidia* packages are deps if you don't have an Nvidia card.

To sum it up, how you can install DaVinci Resolve 14.0b1
1. Download , unzip and run installer with sudo.
2. Install nvidia(-dkms) package if you are using Nvidia and didn't do that already.
3. Install the prerequirments, plus libpng12 and log4cxx
4. Download the missing *.so.10 files from Ubuntu:
inside /opt/resolve/libs directory and create the missing links i.e.:
sudo ln -s /opt/resolve/libs/ /opt/resolve/libs/
sudo ln -s /opt/resolve/libs/ /opt/resolve/libs/
5. Run from command line: /opt/resolve/bin/resolve
to test it or prefix it with QT_DEVICE_PIXEL_RATIO=2 for 4k displays.
6. Fix your /usr/share/applications/DaVinci\ Resolve.desktop
For my 4k display it looks like this:
[Desktop Entry]
Exec=env QT_DEVICE_PIXEL_RATIO=2 /opt/resolve/bin/resolve
Name=DaVinci Resolve

I was trying to install and headed the same issues.

To resolve the problem I've downloaded the following package:

that package contains data.tar.xz -> /./lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

I have extracted both to /opt/resolve/libs and I have created the respective symlinks:

sudo ln -s /opt/resolve/libs/ /opt/resolve/libs/

sudo ln -s /opt/resolve/libs/ /opt/resolve/libs/

The second problem was the missing libpng12 and log4cxx packages that I needed to install too.

The last problem was that I had to install nvidia package (latest drivers) - that dependency is not listed too (although I use actually nvidia-dkms).

This could be potentially added to the PKGBUILD like this:

if pacman -Qq nvidia >/dev/null 2>&1; then
elif pacman -Qq nvidia-lts >/dev/null 2>&1; then
elif pacman -Qq nvidia-dkms >/dev/null 2>&1; then
echo "This package requires either nvidia or nvidia-lts or nvidia-dkms, but neither is installed."
echo "Compilation aborted."
return 1

hint: As a side note, I'm using 4K display and the GUI interface is too small and not HiDPI friendly, so you might want to modify the /usr/share/applications/DaVinci\ Resolve.desktop to have the following Exec line:
Exec=env QT_DEVICE_PIXEL_RATIO=2 /opt/resolve/bin/resolve
